Approximately 40 million American adults ages 18 and up, suffer from anxiety. I’m one of those lucky 40 million. And it’s not fun.
Today has not been a good day, anxiety wise. It started out about 5am this morning. I woke up from a dream – a normal dream, not a bad dream or nightmare – my heart was racing, about to beat out of my chest, and I had a horrible, pounding headache. I sat on the couch for a few minutes, trying to get everything to stop. I popped some Advil and went back to sleep.
But when I got up for the day, I’ve still been feeling anxious. I’m all jittery and fidgety. Still have the headache so I drank a soda for the caffeine but the caffeine didn’t help with my anxiety any. I’m trying to resist taking a pill for my anxiety but I may have to. I listened to some classical music and that’s helped some. I’ve been trying to take it easy today. Did some cleaning but not much. Just trying to relax and help it go away on it’s own.
Do you suffer from anxiety? What do you do to help it? Do you take prescribed medicine or do you do something natural?
